Anyone using the Tropf Blumat drip watering system ? OR similar

Good Day folks...

Years ago (20 +/-) I used a product made in Austria called "Tropf Blumat" which is a combo ceramic cone & membrane dripper system for your plants. It requires no power and is just a gravity fed mechanism which you can link several drippers to... I quite liked it as it took a lot of hassle out of watering... each one senses moisture & drips when reaches the point you set... These used to be available at many gardening supply places but not so much anymore, seems e-bay / amazon is the best place now.

I'm already plotting my Spring Projects as I have the whole winter ahead to plan my demise as it were and contemplating ordering one of their bigger kits for a raised bed garden but I started to add it all up and holy moly... So I am wondering if anyone is using anything similar to the Tropf system... no power/pump needed, gravity fed, dial control for drip rate when soil reaches dry and be extendable so that I could run lines into 15' long raised beds.

Any experience with a similar type of product that you could share would be appreciated... I do know these work well but the price is pretty steep and I am trying to conserve my cash so....

Here's a Photo of what the Tropf Blumat system looks like...

I'm using a generic drip system cobbled together with parts from big box stores, but these certainly look intriguing. Not cheap, though. I'm also curious as to whether anyone has experience with them.
That's why I was asking if anyone knew of a good alternative. I used these a long tie ago and they were the Cats Meow - amazing product BUT the $$$ is mighty stiff. As no one else piped up, I guess I will watch for these on sale.
